What are we thinking!

Lately I have been thinking a lot about the economy and how it is effecting Jonny and I. To be honest Jonny and I have not really felt the pull that others are feeling. We definitely work hard to have our nice things and are able to go out to dinner, but have not really had to worry about paying our bills or buying groceries. Seeing our spending habits lately has made me think of ways we can cut back and start saving more money; in case we do come to a time when we need it. Luckily I have a really great husband who excellent with money and budgeting, but what was I willing to do to contribute? So I googled ways to cut back on spending here is what came up.

1. Cook at home more often.
- We eat out quite frequently. The weekend comes and all we do is go to dinner or lunch. We definitlely can be better at this! Jonny you will now be taking lunch to work!
2. Brown bag lunch at least of few days.
- I take lunch everyday. There is occasionally a time when I dont and will eat out, but Jonny eats out everyday!
3. Make list before going grocery shopping.
- I am a master list maker. I make lists for everything grocery shopping included. The problem with this is we just end up adding crap that we dont need to the list.
4. Disconnect land line if possible.
- We do not have a landline, but our cell phone bill is pretty high. So think of ways to cut back cellphone costs.
5. Avoid impulse buying.
- Jonny and I are awful at this. If we want it, we buy it. We really need to start buying things we absolutely need.
Finally, keep distance from lavish, high-roller friends.
- So to all of our high-roller friends keep away, we cant keep up with your lifestyle! haha

Memorial Day

Jonny and I didnt have any real big plans for Memorial Day since his family was camping and we didnt go. We decided Saturday to hike to Timp Cave. I dont have any pictures since we decided not to bring our camera with us. It is actually good we dont have pictures because we could barely make it up the freakin trail! We both hadn't hiked it since we were younger and it is a lot harder than we thought it was going to be! Needless to say we are both out of shape!

Later that day we decided to go watch Jonny's brother Jace in his baseball tournament. We dont get to see him very often so we take every chance we can get. He plays catcher was awesome. They had won there previous game 10-0, but lost the second game.

On Memorial Day we decided to go to the Zoo. We had my sister Abbey with us so we had Brooke and Macee come with us. The Zoo was super crowded but Macee had so much fun looking at the animals.

Taylor Swift Concert

I went to the Taylor Swift concert with my mom and sisters. She was absolutely amazing! It was the best concert I have ever been too. She was so fun to watch and was such a good singer live. I was most impressed at how humble she was. There was a point when she just stood there for a few minutes took out her earphones and just listened to the crowd cheering for her. She was seriously so cute! I only took a few pictures since I was too busy having agood time!

Here very last song was my favorite. I didnt get a very good video of it so I stole it from Youtube.
